One Promise Fulfilled

OK, so I have realized that I've promised more pictures, the recipe to Nick's birthday
dessert, and this video. So for the record I have fulfilled one of my promises and I am now
not the World's worst blogger! Yay for me! :)

video

Sorry it is sideways, but I didn't have time to wait to rerecord then wait to upload it to here, so I'm sorry, but you will have to deal with it sideways! :)
This is a video of the Christmas tree we got down in Tennessee
last year at this HUGE Christmas store. We saw it and debated forever
if we wanted to get it, but now there is no question about it! We are glad
we decided to get it. In this video it is playing the song "Carol of Bells",
but there is a total of 4 songs that the tree plays.
This means in our tiny apartment we have not one, but 2 Christmas trees! :)
I can't believe how close Christmas is!
Merry Christmas Everyone!

Wowzers!!!

So right now I am pulling a Sar. I am at work and I decided to blog.
Once again...there will not be any pictures...I'm sorry. I will have to get
back on the bandwagon soon. I can not believe how fast this month is
flying by. The other day I was joking with Nick and said, "Hey there is only 18 more days
until my birthday." But after I said it I was thinking wowzers....December is
flying by!!! I am ready for Christmas to be here, but I will be sad when it
passes and then it will be a whole year until we can celebrate it again.

On a different note...I was so frustrated before I came into work tonight.
I have a final on Thursday and I was trying to be a good student and work ahead on
it, but when I went to go pull it up on our computer....You guessed it.....IT WASN'T THERE!!
Ugh! I have no idea what I did or what happened that all of my work did not get
saved. I think what happened because I had a bazillion different windows opened up
that either 1. I saved it under something completly different or 2. I renamed it with
an existing file and the other file was not what I meant for it to be. GRRR so
frustrating....so much work down the drain. I seriously probably had a 1/3 of the
Final Study guide done and now...I have NOTHING.

Nick is so amazing though. Every day he shows me how amazing he is. After I told him...
well lets be honest...Once I yelled that I no longer had the study guide on the computer
he tried to find it for me, in his very calm it's not the end of the world way.

So things we have coming up....Nick is officially done with his semester, I still have
an unofficial week left. I said unofficial because I really only have 2 tests, but I won't be
done until Thursday after 3pm. Then after that...Yay a much needed break.
Over our break we will be working, spending time with my side of the family for Christmas, missing his side of the family, getting things ready for our FINAL semester of our college careers, going to Tennessee and staying in a cabin, and of course...I will be blogging. :)

I will blog more with pictures and a video of our singing
Christmas tree.....

Thoughts In My Head....

This will be quick. I really felt as though I should write something to stay connected to my little space here in blog world. :)
Things have been a little crazy, we have celebrated Thanksgiving, which I have to say I am realizing more and more each day that I have SOO much to be thankful for. I should even be thankful for being stressed because of homework and work, because at least I am able to go to college and in 5 months...only 5 months!! I will have a Bachelor's degree. Also, at least I have a job. I definitely don't like it all of the time and wish I could stay home with Nick instead, but at least I am able to work and earn money and then reap the benefits of having that money. (not many, but still.)

We've gone Christmas shopping and we have almost everyone done! I have to say I love getting my niece, Maddie gifts. She is soooo fun to shop for. I haven't had the chance to get any of Nick's presents yet, even though all of mine from him are wrapped and under our tree. He is a Christmas freak...but it is just one more thing that I absolutely love about him!

Our Christmas Breaks will be starting soon...Can't wait....but that also means that a lot of stuff is due to finish up the semester and then finals. YUCK! I did get lucky this semester though...I only have 1 final, but a lot of projects. Well I should get back to homework so I'm not overwhelmed this week.
